Home to countless attractive galleries, cafes and boutiques, Poho is the favourite choice of many young professionals.

The ever-growing area is also one of the best choices for property investment.
Connected to the downtown area through the Mid Levels Escalator, NoHo properties are a profound investment for those who would like to be within strolling distance from Central, Lang Kwai Fong, and enjoy one stop access to the trendiest entertainment and shopping zones in the city.
